And now a deviation from the rain theme. In fact, a deviation from videos altogether.
Glam rock throwbacks The Darkness have a new album out called Hot Cakes (presumably because they want their record to sell like them). It has one of my favourite covers ever. Here’s the artwork from it:
The artwork was painted by Diego Gravinese. Pictures of him making the picture and some models posing for it can be found on his Flickr page.
The last time we had an album cover that good was in 1965…
In other news, Arch Enemy are a band I like that nobody else on the blog seems to know much about. I’ll tell you this though – they’re working on a video for one of the tracks from their 2011 album Khaos Legions. Mud and fake blood anyone?
Here’s hoping the video turns out well, regardless of which track they’re doing. Not just for the sake of a future Music Monday, either.
